第60期自學包裹簡介

幾乎與蘋果電腦齊名的賈伯斯辭世,為科技產業投下一個震撼彈。有人認為蘋果的未來將充滿變數,產業的龍頭地位為不保,但也有分析師認為賈伯斯已經成功接棒。本次中高級自學包裹以176期英語宅急便內容為本,讓我們透過這個新聞分析來了解賈伯斯辭世對科技產業未來的影響。
 
本期也把文章中的學術字彙抓出來當成重點字彙練習。AWL字彙表由570word family(包含一個字的詞類變化與衍生字)組成。經過研究發現,這570個字群是橫跨各領域學術的高頻率單字,已經是目前國際高等教育的英語教學的重要參考資料。同學只要熟練AWL字彙表與其衍生字,就可以用最少的力氣,讀懂各領域的文章,吸收新知。
